Critic Reviews of "Blancanieves"VarietyNovember 27, 2013
This year's crowded field of Snow White movies has a winner, at least in terms of quality, in Pablo Berger's delightful Blancanieves.Globe and MailNovember 27, 2013
Berger, like his rad forebear Luis Bunuel, marries poetry to film.Globe and MailNovember 27, 2013
While the story, shorn of its supernatural elements, is mired in abuse and tragedy, its effect is sensual and superficial.New York Daily NewsNovember 27, 2013
We're not in Disney's world. Berger knows his Grimm, and he suffuses his entrancing fairy tale with a moving sense of melancholy.Chicago TribuneNovember 27, 2013
From Spain, here's a miracle of fairy tale repurposing: a version of the Brothers Grimm's "Snow White," set in Spanish bullfighting country in the late 1920s. Writer-director Pablo Berger's Blancanieves goes all the way with its concept, and then further.NewcityJune 13, 2015
Loving, willful anachronism... silent black-and-white fairytale Blancanieves-"a local film for a global market"-retells the familiar tale against a backdrop of bullfighting and flamenco in 1920s Seville, with intermittent roosters and dwarfs.Sydney Morning HeraldDecember 08, 2014
It's like watching a gorgeous tragi-comic opera written by Dickens and co-directed by Fellini and Almodovar.Times (UK)December 08, 2014
The film is exquisitely shot and Macarena Garcia is achingly gorgeous as the fawn-eyed Carmen/Snow White.Empire MagazineDecember 08, 2014
A Spanish take on Snow White that picks up where The Artist left off and shows the full elegance of silent filmmaking.Independent (UK)December 08, 2014
No film this year will look as swooningly beautiful, its deep-focus monochrome vividly rendered by the cinematographer Kiko de la Rica, and not many will sound as good, either, thanks to a score by Alfonso de Vilallong.Movie MezzanineDecember 08, 2014
Blancanieves is a truly stunning motion picture, the kind of movie that makes you glad the movies exist.
